Figure 5: Favoured location (X) for initiation of convective storms [77]. Storms tend to develop over locally warm surfaces (shading denotes land surface temperature anomalies (K) based on a composite of nearly 4000 cases), but close to wetter (cooler) soils downwind. Arrows in mauve and black denote, respectively, the surface-induced, and large-scale components of the wind.
